News

Off to Dartmoor

In early October, 9 members of the 2nd and 3rd men's teams went off for a long weekend in Dartmoor for the 5th year in succession. We stayed at the Manor and Ashbury hotel, a specialist sport hotel with a dozen tennis courts. (The prison wouldn't have us). We had 2 hours of intense tennis on each of the four days interspersed with golf, bowls, swimming, spa treatments, snooker, 10-pin bowling and lots of beer. We have already booked for the first weekend in October 2018, if you want to join us then contact the Chairman.

Mr & Mrs Competition

A great afternoon of fun tennis with 8 couples from the club. A round robin followed by a knockout format  gave us our seeded players . In the semis Michael and Tracy came up against Mel and Andy; Bob and Roz played Lee and Charles . Both semis were intense but the finalists for the tournament would be Charles and Lee, Mel and Andy .  With lots of ooohs and arrrrhs and very assertive calls by partners (you soon know who was the boss on both sides of the court !!) , the Winner of the Mr & Mrs Trophy 2017 was Mel and Andy. Thanks to everyone . Good fantastic food yet again . Salads by Sarah , sausage rolls by Ian, apple and almond cake by Linda (wow!!)  

Club Finals Day
